“Partnering with our community hospital as we begin this exciting relationship with Johns Hopkins Medicine will be the perfect way for us to meaningfully touch the lives of our county’s citizens,” said Frank Vitale, CEO and president. “It also allows MUIH clinical interns and faculty to be contributing members of an interprofessional healthcare team.”
This new agreement offers MUIH graduate clinical interns the opportunity to learn from and work beside health providers at HCGH. The clinical interns will be able to offer invaluable non-pharmaceutical alternatives to patients, enabling HCGH to develop and offer a progressive, integrative medical model.
By providing individuals more choices for their preferred type of care, this integrative model allows patients to have greater control over their healing experience and results in a higher level of overall satisfaction with their care. MUIH looks forward to working closely with HCGH to create a successful and rewarding clinical, educational, and collaborative experience for all involved in the affiliation.
